Who should get the vaccine and when?

Currently, the United States supply of COVID-19 vaccine is limited, because of this the CDC is providing recommendations to federal, state, and local governments about who should be vaccinated first. New York State is following a phased-approach and determines who is eligible within specific priority groups and has begun rolling out the vaccine. To view who is eligible as outlined on the State website.

If you have an underlying medical condition which puts you at more risk for serious complications, you should get vaccinated.

We know that Black, Hispanic and Native Americans are dying from COVID at nearly three times the rate of white Americans, which is why it is important for everyone start having conversations with their healthcare providers.

Pregnant women are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. We ask that those who are pregnant, breastfeeding or plan to become pregnant that they speak with their OB/GYN to have a conversation about getting vaccinated.

The long term goal is for everyone to be able to easily get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as large enough quantities of vaccine are available.
